What a tree! And a lovely day. Finally got outside for a bit. I'm working on a number of projects but no photos yet. So this will have to do for now. It is an enormous cottonwood tree at a rest area between Alpine and Ft. Davis. A favorite spot!
After studying with Tony Ryder at the Ryder Studio in Santa Fe, NM I have found myself completely drawn to the mystique of the human face. I still love landscapes and still life work, but there is a tremendous joy in working with a live model.
Painting since 1994, full time since 2000, I have studied in the US, France and England. Portraiture studies have been with Perrin Sparks of Texas and Anthony Ryder of Santa Fe, NM. I am now working with my mentor, Jennifer Welty of CA.
